Connectiva invites you to the opening of the group exhibition Transcending Time, on Thursday 28 September at 20:00 at a neoclassical building at Aiolou and Vissis 1, in the centre of Athens.

It will take place from the 28th of September to the 21st of October 2017 and it is supported by the NEON Cultural and Development Organization and under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture and Sports.

The exhibition explores the spaces of possibility and creation that the technological generates either through a symplefsis (being in line) or an antithesis. In such times of accelerated change and permanent flux people often find themselves embracing contrasting dynamics around the digital, the mechanical and the mediated experiences: conceptions can vary from faithfully following the mantra of innovation and connectivity to a nostalgia for the analogue past.
The artworks of this exhibition function as an act of intervention between the fluidity of the digital and networked ecologies and the fixity of the analogue experience in terms of exploring the possibility of a more useful involvement of the general public so that new communication channels would be launched upon the art – technology dipole.

Participating Artists: Abbas Basel & Abou-Rahme Ruanne, Marina Velisioti, Zoi Giabouldaki, Giorgos Gyparakis, Dimitris Efeoglou, Louiza Zachareas, Mary Thivaiou, Maria Kriara, Kyriaki Costa, Michel Lamoller, Miltos Manetas, Sophia Papacosta, Kostas Tsolis, Kostas Christopoulos.
